Producer Sol C. Siegel
Production Company Paramount Pictures

Rumble Rumble Tinkle Tinkle? I do that in the can! The music is in the wrong era there.. Ruble Tinkle is swing music which hadn't been introduced yet to the public pre-silent films...but I'll watch the rest of this another day. I'm just not in the mood for swing when it's supposed to be turn of the last century.

alot of fun. It be should noted that at the time of those serials (19teens) that the stunts were done by the actors themselves. There was no stuntmen association. An example of that was Gary Cooper whose real name was Frank Cooper. As a stuntman, he paid for his college tuition doing stunts on horses until he broke his hip and that's why he rode so stiffly in later years.
